BeWell Privacy Statement
Information Collected by BeWell
When you register for and participate in the BeWell and Healthy Living Programs, we will collect and use your personal information in the following ways:
- Information you provide:
- Registration and Account Setup
When you use our websites to create your account during the BeWell registration process, we collect your name, gender, SUNet ID, contact information, university employee ID, date of birth, employment type, department, location, university affiliation, hire date and how you heard about BeWell programs. Spouses/registered domestic partners are asked to provide their name, contact information, username, password, gender, date of birth, and how they heard about BeWell. When registering for Healthy Living programs, all registrants will be asked for their Stanford affiliation. Stanford University employees, post-docs, and students will be asked for their SUNet ID and password. They will confirm their email address and phone number and select their Department. All other registrants will be asked to provide name, email, and preferred phone number. Participants may be asked to provide credit card information to process payments for classes or workshops.
- BeWell Program
As part of the BeWell SHALA, Wellness Profile and Engagement activities, we may collect your name, university employee ID, age, contact information, gender, lifestyle behaviors, physical activity, attitudes, screening data, behavioral action plans and other health information, such as session notes if you participate in Advising or Coaching, and screening information collected by your health care provider. If you participate in BeWell Berry or Engagement activities, such as classes or workshops, including those delivered by departments outside of BeWell, you may be asked to provide your name, phone number, employee ID and email address to the department offering the class or workshop. This information, along with the program title, would then be shared with BeWell for the purposes of granting Berry or Engagement credit. You may also be asked to provide credit card information to process payments for classes or workshops. Spouses/registered domestic partners are not eligible for receiving the monetary Berry or Engagement incentive but may participate in some BeWell offerings. In that case, the same information may be collected from them.
- Healthy Living Programs
In a small set of Healthy Living programs, you may need to provide personal information for the purpose of delivering the class content; session notes will be taken for individuals in multi-session coaching. Individuals in multi-session coaching will be directed to schedule their appointments using a 3rd party platform. Class instructors will receive rosters of all their participants and will be asked to keep attendance. Upon request, LeadWell class champions may receive a roster with names and emails of class participants. Participant information, such as name, employee ID, and email address, along with program title, will be shared with BeWell for the purposes of granting Berry or Engagement credit. When a class is offered by an outside vendor, participants should review the privacy policies and other terms of that vendor, which may be outside the control and management of Stanford.
We periodically use surveys to gather additional information about you and to evaluate our offerings. The surveys may collect personal information such as age, phone number, gender, demographic variables, lifestyle behaviors, attitudes, and other health information.

For purposes of administration and management of the BeWell Program, we may access human resources information regarding University employees, including your employee ID, job type, union status, job location, gender, organization unit and department.
